CPL training guidance needed- from India,USA or any other country

Dear All,

Im new to this forum so please pardon my mistakes. I had posted this initially on another thread but due to lack of response I decided to start a new thread.

I'm from Pune (India).I intend to be a pilot. I am currently in my third year of engineering and will be able to start my CPL training by 2018 May.
I have done some homework about the best flying schools in India (IGRUA and NFTI) and have also spoken to Star Educare, the Indian representatives of Dean International Miami. The latter have quoted me 26.5 lacs for their package including VISA, Training Fee and Stay and with an assuring guarantee of one of their Indian students recently(Aug 2016) completing the course in 5 months.

I have spoken to 2 pilots recently & both have suggested me to go abroad and join a good Flying School.
I have heard several bad experiences of the conversion process to Indian DGCA CPL which is making me sceptical to go for the latter option.
I am not fancied to go abroad but Im looking out for the best school who offers best training in the shortest time without charging much. If that is available in India there wont be anything like it.
Also I have read the thread on this forum about the difference of flying training in India and abroad and @cyrilroy21 s educating answer stating the same.

Please, can someone share the current scenario of:
1)Course at IGRUA.
2)Course at NFTI.
3)Indigo Cadet Programme.
4)Course at Dean International Miami.
5)Job availability in the Indian Aviation Sector (now and by the time Id finish my course). I have also @cyrilroy21 s answer of whose hiring (in Jan 2016) too.
Also Pilots all over the world, you are welcome to comment & help me.

Thanks In Advance.
